I have the need to create a Live USB to install Windows but from Ubuntu, I've tried to emulate the tools that make the same function from windows but I just do not work.

I would be very helpful to know how. Thanks

Following the guide from THIS link

Just download MultiBoot from here: http://liveusb.info/multisystem/install-depot-multisystem.sh.tar.bz2

Decompress it. Run the install-depot-multiboot.sh from the terminal and follow the instructions. You should see the program in Applications -> Accessories -> MultiSystem (And even a MultiSystem for Virtualbox)

Then just run the program and follow the steps in it. Already tested Windows XP, Ubuntu and Windows 7.

There is a two-click possibility using WinUSB.

2017 UPDATE: WinUSB has been forked to WoeUSB, which supports Windows 10. See a guide here.

enter image description here

To install WinUSB, execute the following commands in terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:colingille/freshlight
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install winusb

I have tested this in 12.04 and 12.10.

    Note: This works for Windows Vista and up. ("Supported images: Windows Vista, Seven, 8 installer for any language and any version (home, pro...) and Windows PE.") – Glutanimate Sep 23 '12 at 19:58
  • ppa is not available by this time.2 – George Feb 13 '17 at 14:26
  • Instaed of "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:colingille/freshlight" use "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8" colingille repo is not working. You will get error in step 3. – Abhishek Sachan May 11 '17 at 12:49
